Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL Launch Reportedly Set for October 4

Those still skeptical over the leak need remember that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL also launched on 4 October a year ago, so the date does match usual Google plans.

Famebit acts as a direct link between marketing agencies and YouTube creators.

The Google Pixel 3 XL will probably feature a display notch, while the Pixel 3 will not, but its bezels will be a bit thicker because of it. The item was spotted by Brandon Lee of This Is Tech Today, a YouTube channel, who notes that the campaign is specifically targeting Canadian content creators. "The Pixel 3 phone is launching October 4th, 2018".

It's no secret that Google will launch Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones in the coming months, but the exact release date has proved elusive.

"It is unknown whether the post was created by Google itself, an external marketer or someone unrelated entirely".

In any case, the Pixel 3 will probably be available to buy one or two weeks after the announcement.




Indeed, when a series of real-life leaked Pixel 3 photos leaked online and were turned into a super-accurate renders of the new handsets, the similarity to Apple's iPhone was marked.

Considering that both the original Pixel and the Pixel 2 were released on this date in 2017 and 2016 respectively, you may be forgiven for thinking there wasn't a lot of detective work that went into this.

Industry leaker Evan Blass reported that besides the Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, and second-generation Pixel Buds, Google's upcoming hardware event will introduce a Pixel-branded watch.

Last week the Google Pixel 3 XL appeared on Geekbench's database, showcasing the potential internals of the device.

Today, Google announced Android 9 Pie, the next version of OS which has been in testing since February.
